About this item
Karen Pryor is a behavioral biologist with an international reputation in two fields, marine mammal biology and behavioral phsychology. She is a founder and leading proponent of clicker training, a training system based on operant conditioning (isolate wanted behaviors and ignore the unwanted) and the all-positive methods developed by marine mammal trainers. Clicker training is now in use world wide with dogs, cats, horses, birds, zoo animals, and increasingly with humans, in the teaching of sports and athletic performances and developing behaviors in autistics. Clicker training is the revolutionary method of training that is kind, effective, fast, simple and fun! Written by Karen Pryor, the world-renowned pioneer of the clicker, Clicker Training for Dogs is an ideal introduction that shows you how to teach your dog: general obedience moves, to come when called, not to pull on th elead, target training, to carry items and to put them away, tricks and games. Once you've mastered the basic principles of clicker training, you can use it for problem-solving and for expanding on your dog's training - with the clicker, anything is possible!
